“Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are both set to launch in markets like India priced around Rs 50,000”
Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite on Friday as affordable versions of the company’s flagship Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 phones. The official announcement revealed the design and specifications of the two smartphones, but there was no word on their pricing and availability. While Samsung is still yet to reveal the markets where these smartphones will launch, it has now confirmed the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite price, according to a new report by SamMobile. Both the Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite are expected to launch in markets like India priced around Rs 50,000.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, Note 10 Lite price
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite price will start at 649 euro (around Rs 52,000). This makes the phone cheaper by 100 euro compared to the Galaxy S10e, which was actually launched as an affordable version of the Galaxy S10 last year. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 10 Lite will start at 599 euro (around Rs 48,000), as per the latest report. These prices are for the 6GB RAM base variants. The top-end variant of the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite come with 8GB RAM.
The prices for the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite are indeed more affordable than the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 flagships. Both the Galaxy Lite phones are expected to launch in India this month, and we expect the Indian pricing to be more competitive. A sub-Rs 50,000 price in India would allow the Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite to compete against OnePlus in the premium mid-range segment.
To recall, Samsung launched the Galaxy S10 series in India starting at Rs 55,900 for the Galaxy S10e, while the Galaxy S10 and S10+ started at Rs 66,900 and Rs 73,900, respectively. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ were launched in India at Rs 69,999 and Rs 79,999, respectively.
